Busy start for week-long Burnham-On-Sea yard sale for Kenyan kids

More than £1,000 was raised for an African charity on the first day of a week-long yard sale which is being held at a Burnham-On-Sea home.

Sue Stevens and friends are holding the fundraising sale at 41 Margaret Crescent, just off Burnham's South Esplanade, in aid of Educate The Kids, a charity that helps Kenyan schoolchildren.

The yard sale is being each day, from 10am-4.30pm, between May 5th-12th with scores of bargains available.

"We were delighted with the number of visitors at our first day, with over £1,000 being raised - quite incredible, " Sue told

"A full range of household effects, from quality clothes for men, women and children, to extensive beach clothing and swimwear is being sold plus toys, African jewellery and more."

Sue added: "The people of Burnham have always been very supportive of Educate the Kids and many local people now sponsor Kenyan children through their education via our charity."
